The last full week of May has passed and honestly I’m getting a little bummed out. I have so many more me-made things to wear and share… except work clothes… those are few and far between now.
Let’s see how I did this past week:
Sunday, May 22
My Little Mermaid Plantain is so lightweight and comfortable. I managed to get out of the house only to wash my car as I didn’t feel like sharing more lounge clothes like the past Sundays. That and my car needed to be washed badly…
Monday, May 23
I am in love with my Seamwork Aurora Tank and never think to wear it to work. It’s so comfortable yet can look a little “dressed up.” Sad thing is I have to throw a shrug over it to keep it both professional and warm in our icebox of an office.
Shrug: WalMart (don’t judge!)
Pants: Banana Republic Outlet
Shoes: Michael Kors from Off Saks 5th Avenue Outlet
Tuesday, May 24
Another Colette Moneta and another collaboration with my man, Tasso!
Earrings: White House Black Market
Necklace: Gift from my BFF Mihoko when I left Japan
Wednesday, May 25 Day
I have to say this red knit top I made at the how-to-sew class at Joann’s 5 years ago is really hanging in there. It’s a little too big and not quite my style, but it has been worn many times and always gets the odd compliment or two. I’m wanting to retire it soon but maybe I’ll wait until next year’s MMM to make that call.
Necklace: Purchased in Kyoto, Japan
Wednesday, May 25 Night
Whooooah Wednesday was a double-decker! DD and I wanted to go out for sushi this night, so I slipped into something more comfortable… namely my Chicken Mama Renfrew Shirt!
Jeans: Lucky Outlet Store
Shoes: Minnetonka from ModCloth
Thursday, May 26
I always forget just how comfortable wearing my maxi skirt can be… especially through a long day at work. I really must make more of these.
Shirt: Forever 21
Friday, May 27
Thank goodness I only had to work a half day on Friday (supposed to be a day off for me, but I had to sneak in the last of my mandatory overtime hours! Living the dream…). My Peacock Scoop Top is super comfortable and breezy for those hot summer days.
Saturday, May 28
Ahhh, it’s finally the weekend! DD and I don’t have plans for this long holiday weekend, so we’re playing things by ear. We heard of a good German restaurant (called German Cafe) in Sierra Vista and decided to make the hour and a half drive there to try it out. I’m happy to say that it was delicious, but that was a long time to be in the car just for food! Anyway, I wore this cute little dress so I could stuff myself with schnitzel and sausage!
Sunglasses: 11-year old Oakleys
There are only 3 more days left for Me-Made-May! I hope I can make the most out of them! How are y’all doing with your pledges?
